With a touch of paranormal interference, a lost love seems to be working to help Perry and Manny find their happy ever after, while hinting that some things may not be as they seem.

Two years after the death of the first woman to hold his heart, Manny meets a woman who fires his desire to love again, but to do so, must he say goodbye the ghost of his first love?

Perry’s social anxiety causes her to isolate herself from everyone, including the man she’s inexplicably drawn to. As desperately as she wants to break free from her self-imposed prison, she can’t overcome her own insecurities.

Manny is determined to prove to Perry she is worthy of love. And just when he thinks he has succeeded, he’s forced to keep a difficult promise that will forever impact their lives. 

Can a little divine intervention from Manny’s first love help Perry and Manny find their way to a happily ever after?

Finding Your Way is a very sweet love story, between Perry and Manny. Perry's a writer with serious anxiety issues and Manny, is...well Manny. He's getting over the loss of his girlfriend to heart failure. They were planning to marry.  

Perry is the first woman he's felt anything for since her death and that's going on 3 years.

It is an awkward courtship to say the least, but it is absolutely hard not to love Perry. Manny for the most part comes off as a bit too good to be true. He's a little too perfect, doing everything right for Perry, without many missteps. Not that their relationship wasn't without any missteps, because lord knows there were a few.

Then there is the touch of the paranormal in the ghost of Manny's first love Connie.  I loved the "real" specter of Connie, helping them along. Her presence at times takes a normal romance and makes it more unique without being too ghosty. (If that makes any sense)

 Perry really needs those ghostly visits of Connie's, especially after a plot twist that will have your jaw drop to the floor. Her actions after that made me want to shake her just a little bit. I understand her anxiety. I've suffered with it myself but there were times when I wondered if she were really doing enough for herself and she definitely wasn't letting anyone that cared about her help her along the way. She was in a state of isolated anxiety, which truly couldn't be any help to her physical well being.

Again, all through it, Manny is just super perfect. I would have loved to see a chink in his armor of goodness. They fall in love, and like in all romance novels, I couldn't really find a reason for it, except physical attraction. I really wanted their relationship to feel a bit more "human"

There HEA was sweet and all was well with the super nasty plot twist too. This was definitely an enjoyable read, and very different from your average romance novel.
